Sapio’s Question Explorer uses this proven method as the foundation of its dating app. It allows you to scroll through over 21 question categories that matter most to you – “Hopes and Dreams,” “Achievements,” “Hypotheticals,” etc. – and discover answers from people with similar interests. Respond to questions to grow your visibility with others who value the same things.

Sapio is a FREE dating app.

▸What’s makes Sapio different from other dating apps on the market?
Sapio has a simple goal: We want to foster more meaningful conversations than “Hey” and “What’s up?”
Sapio is the only dating app with a foundation that’s based on a Q&A match system. This allows you to find your soulmate through their lived experiences, heartfelt opinions, and bold passions. Other dating apps offer a multiple-choice Q&A system, but Sapio’s Question Explorer is open-ended; it allows people to give unique answers that reveal individual personalities.
▸What does Sapio mean?
Sapio is short for Sapiosexual:
One who finds the contents of someone else's mind to be their most attractive attribute, above and before their physical characteristics. From the Latin root “sapien,” meaning wise. The term is now becoming mainstream with dating apps such as OkCupid and Sapio, which give users the ability to define their sexual orientations as “Sapiosexual.”
For many, defining oneself as Sapiosexual is also a statement against the current status quo of hookup culture and superficiality, where looks are prized above all else.
Give me a deep conversation or a passionate debate over brainless beauty any day. Someone who makes me reconsider my long-held beliefs and challenges my mind is a person I can easily fall for. There is no doubt that I'm a sapiosexual.
– Kristin Tynski, Sapio Co-Founder
▸Will you have a web version of Sapio?
